"Flurona" registered in Serbia.
Director of the Institute for Public Health "Batut", Verica Jovanovi, stated that the first case of flurona in Serbia was registered.
Flurona is, let us remind you, the simultaneous presence of influenza virus and coronavirus in one person. "It is very difficult to distinguish the clinical picture between COVID and the manifestation of the flu virus. It is fever, general weakness, all the symptoms of respiratory infection. What is characteristic is that it passes quickly, such as the manifestation of omicron strain that causes COVID infection", stated Jovanovi.
She pointed out that flurona will be repeated, and that for the first time this year, Torlak Institute is determining the presence of both viruses on the samples that are being delivered.
